Liz Wiseman is the president of a leadership research and development firm, the Wiseman Group, headquartered in Silicon Valley, where she advises senior executives and leads strategy and leadership forums for executive teams worldwide.
Liz Wiseman is a researcher and executive advisor who teaches leadership to executives around the world. Recent clients include Apple, GAP Inc., Genentech/Roche, Kellogg, Nike, Salesforce.com, Symantec, SAP, Twitter, and Microsoft. In 2021 she was awarded a coveted spot on the Thinkers50 list of the top 50 management and business thought leaders in the world today.
Wiseman’s significant body of research in the field of leadership and collective intelligence informs both her bestselling books and her speaking. She is the author of the New York Times bestseller Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter and of The Multiplier Effect: Tapping the Genius Inside Our Schools. She is also the author of the Wall Street Journal bestseller Rookie Smarts: Why Learning Beats Knowing in the New Game of Work, and most recently, Impact Players: How to Take the Lead, Play Bigger, and Multiply Your Impact.
With audiences, Wiseman highlights the difference between the leaders who drain intelligence, energy, and capability from the people around them, while always needing to be the smartest person in the room, versus the leaders who do just the opposite—they amplify the smarts, energy, and capabilities of those around them. These model leaders who educate, engage, and inspire stretch themselves and others, getting maximum impact across a wide spectrum. She illustrates the five disciplines that distinguish Multipliers from Diminishers, and the resoundingly positive and profitable effect these Multipliers have on organizations—how they get more done with fewer resources, develop and attract talent, and cultivate new ideas and energy to drive organizational change and innovation.
